1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Curses! Foiled again in an attempt to tick another country. Sad, I know. Any way, this pale lager (4.8% these days) has an orange tinge to the clear golden pour, and the thin white head goes quickly. Aromas of cardboard and cooked vegetables. Taste is kind of sweet, kind of chemically. Not very good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
660ml bottle, Kings Cross Tandoori, London (£4.25):
Corn & some lager malts with light and sweet notes. There is some grassy hops as well and overall the beer is light on the nose with a clean and fresh aroma.
Bright amber with a foamy white head that holds pretty well for a pale lager. Clear and there is some signs of carbonation showing.
Light and clean taste with some grassy hops, faint background fruits and some light bitterness. Quite refreshing tasting and one that goes down well with a curry.
Clean and refreshing too, particularly with spicy food. There is a slightly grainy feel but nothing major. Carbonation is moderate to strong and the beer goes down easy.
A pretty good pale lager and much better than one would expect going in. The taste is a crisp and clean one with a nice bite at the end and it goes particularly well with spicy food.

Bottle at the Mogul, Bagshot, 05/09/13. Listed as 4.8% ABV.
Clear golden, slight chill haze, good sized egg shell white head.

Medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, a little ott on the fizz factor.
Ok as a pale lager I guess.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Rather fizzy, a bit of hop crispness balancing the corn. A little bit of sweetness. You can do worse with a curry.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2013 Lys gyllen farve med hvitt skum som ligger en stund. Søtlig duft. Søtlig smak av frukt med bitter ettersmak.

Helt ok lager. Godt å drikke men ikke så spesielt. Fint sommer og grill øl. Leskende.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
0,66 flaske fra polets nettbutikk, 4,8%: en innbydende flaske med en eksotisk etikett, dette lover godt. Tett hvitt skum som faktisk varer, men tvilen sniker seg inn. Her er praktisk talt ingen aroma, bare et sneev av stall og uvaskede sokker. Første munnfull gir assosiasjoner til gammelt høy. Ingen ettersmak som er verdt å beskrive. Etter hvert går det fortere og fortere ned, her er ingen grunn til å nyte dråpene."A rich full flavour with an extraordinaryily smooth taste" - bullshit! A total waste of good money.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Used to be one of the better accompaniments to a curry but alcohol has been reduced to 4.8% making it rather bland in comparison.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Golden lager with a thinned white top. Nose is surprisingly interesting. Corn, malt and a lemon hint. Very cereal in the mouth too, and a little heavier than most similar lagers. Bland, boring by serves a purpose.
